The IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Financial Services 2017 Predictions study developed seven drivers that both CIOs and their business partners should consider over the next 36 months. The list is not meant to be exhaustive nor is it meant to be final. IDC Financial Insights publishes a new list of drivers annually, and many are evolutionary.

Digital transformation is a huge undertaking at banks worldwide, with 96% of banks we've recently surveyed reporting some sort of DX strategy at their institutions. But one fundamental aspect of DX involves the recognition that banks don't need to own the whole value chain, and in fact it may be beneficial to work with technology partners and fintechs to create new value chains in which they play only selected roles.

Everyone enjoys carousel rides. Well, most people enjoy them unless they reach a point in their lives where vertigo prevents them from even looking at one spinning without feeling queasy. The best part about the ride is trying to grab those elusive brass rings as they came down the chute. Grab one, and you get a free ride. Unfortunately for many banks, customer service can be equal to the ride on the carousel, except instead of excitement it turns into missed opportunities and customer resentment.
